RELIGIOUS LEADERS LAUNCH NEW IMMIGRATION REFORM CAMPAIGN
Together as Brothers and Sisters Campaign Announced by Priests for Justice for Immigrants and the Sisters and Brothers of Immigrants
Chicago, IL (April 11, 2013) – Priests for Justice for Immigrants, a group of more than 200 priests, and the Sisters and Brothers of Immigrants, a network of over 180 sisters and brothers representing 59 religious orders, along with immigrant families and native-born supporters, gathered at Holy Name Cathedral today to launch the Together as Brothers and Sisters campaign.
